Full Description

Our early childhood program is built around a comforting daily, weekly and yearly rhythm that nourishes the whole child.  Natural materials and simple toys provide our students with ample opportunities for developing their imagination.

The full-day 8:30am to 3:00pm preschool offers multi-aged classes for ages 3-5, including Voluntary Preschool (VPK) for 4-year-olds who are 4 by September 1, 2017.  The programs are child-centered and inspired by public Waldorf principles.  Our credentialed teachers receive training in developmentally and culturally appropriate practices, including early childhood training at Steiner College.

Admission to and enrollment in the VPK program will include a preference for admission to Seaside Community Charter School, a tuition-free public charter school.  Extended care is available at no extra charge from 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM for working families.  Please contact SeaTurtleELC@gmail.com for enrollment information.
